- Examinations will be given on published dates only. Exceptions will be made for documented medical (doctor’s note required) or hardship reasons. Exceptions will also be made for students who have religious obligations that conflict with an exam date. If you are unable to write an exam due to medical problems, please contact me before the exam or within 24 hours after the exam. Students who do not contact me within 24 hours after the exam will be assigned a grade of “0” on the exam. If you are unable to write an exam due to religious obligations, please notify me within the first 2 weeks of class. If you are unable to write an exam for medical reasons, you are expected to complete it within the shortest time period possible at the convenience of the TA. You will be offered only one alternative time. Moreover, the content and/or format of the makeup exam may differ from the exam that was administered in class. Like originally scheduled exams, missed make-up exams will only be accommodated with medical documentation. - Exam grades will be posted on the course website by student number, typically within two weeks of the exam. Students wishing to view their exam should make an appointment with the TA. Students who have viewed their exam and who feel that a mistake was made in the grading of their exam, may submit a brief written description of the error within 2 weeks of the grades being posted, and their exam will be re-graded by the professor. Re-grades will not be considered after the 2-week mark, although students are welcome to review their exams at any point in the term. Activity Assignments You have the option to complete up to two activity assignments during the course (out of 3 total opportunities). These assignments are designed to help you think more deeply about some of the topics we discuss in this course in a fun, insightful way. These assignments will involve time and effort on your part outside of class and will include a writing component. You must be in attendance when the assignment is announced (so that you know what the assignment is) and when it is to be turned in . Assignments must be turned in at their designated time in class and can NOT be emailed or given to the professor or a TA outside of class. Extra assignments will NOT earn you extra credit. Department Policy on Distribution of Grades in Psychology Courses Courses offered by the Psychology Department are required to meet a target grade distribution. This is done in order to ensure that all students are assessed fairly in relation to students in other sections of the same course and to students in other courses. The target grade distribution for 300-level psychology courses requires that the mean for the class fall between 66% and 70%, with a standard deviation of approximately 13%. Accordingly, students should note that the Department may scale the final grades in this course up or down if the distribution of grades deviates substantially from the target. Official scaling is applied at the end of the course. A student’s grade is not official until it appears on his or her academic record.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
